Freda took the name Gibson when her mother remarried, and she began singing regularly in clubs by the age of 13. Not even 18-years-old when she made her radio debut, Georgia was soon lending her bold and brassy pipes to the big bands of Frank Trambauer and Artie Shaw. After joining the Garry Moore-Jimmy Durante radio show in the late 40's, Moore bestowed her with the playful sobriquet that stuck - "Her Nibs, Miss Georgia Gibbs!"
Soon thereafter, Georgia struck out on her own and joined the Hit Parade, scoring 25 hit singles on the Coral and Mercury labels over the next two decades, including two #1 smashes - "Kiss Of Fire" (1952) and "Dance With Me Henry" (1955). Now, Hit Parade Records has collected all of her Top 50 hits onto one album - many on CD for the first time ever!
The Complete Original Hits Of Georgia Gibbs contains the original versions of Georgia's greatest hits - not the versions she recorded for other labels later in her career. Here, you'll find her chart debut, the Top 5 novelty tune, "(If I Knew You Were Comin') I'd've Baked a Cake," recorded for Coral Records in 1950. And you'll thrill to Georgia's upbeat renditions of rock, country, and R&B songs like "Tweedlee Dee" (LaVern Baker), some of which were bigger hits for the gorgeous Miss Gibbs than for the original performers. With the passing of Her Nibs in Dec. 2006, The Complete Original Hits Of Georgia Gibbs stands as a loving tribute to a remarkable performer and the most comprehensive anthology of her popular recordings ever compiled.
Hit Parade Records is a new Canadian label dedicated to finding, restoring, and preserving lost treasures like these. Exclusively distributed in the United States by Eric Records, Hit Parade employs many of the same creative folks who lovingly compile those great Eric CD's - including Greg Adams, whose detailed liner notes (including new information from Georgia's final interview, conducted especially for this release) will fascinate you for nearly as long as the 58-plus minutes of music contained on The Complete Original Hits Of Georgia Gibbs! And, don't miss Hit Parade's other great collections, Fabulous Fifties Divas and Fabulous Fifties Crooners as well as Hard To Find Jukebox Classics 1956.
